Our culture and people

Our culture, core values and team members drive our success. We pride ourselves on demonstrating that we are a values-led company, passionate about diversity, inclusion and equity. We care deeply about creating a safe and healthy place for people to work and encourage a culture of openness and integrity. We are invested in continuous growth across all areas and this is reflected across the business from our team members through to customers, partners and the communities we work with.


Inclusive and equitable working

VIBES: Volunteering. Inclusivity. Belonging. Equality. Society.

Lightsource bp is an agile and diverse organisation, driven by our entrepreneurial spirit. Our VIBES programme encourages individuality and creative thinking which drives our success and ability to innovate. We have created an open and inclusive business so our people can contribute towards the growth and success of our company, encouraging global collaboration and equality.

That said, there is still much more to do. We have to continue to push the boundaries of our thinking, keep improving on diversity, equity and inclusion – and keep the vibrancy and openness of our culture alive.

As we continue to deliver solar power to our world, VIBES holds us accountable to our core values, and drives us to become better people and a better business through our growth. It aligns with the ‘People’ pillar of our sustainability strategy and helps us create a positive social impact for our people, partners and communities.

Our core values

From our corporate social responsibility to our passion for renewable energy, Lightsource bp works to five core values that shape everything we do.


Safety is integral to everything we do. We take full responsibility for creating and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our people and our world.


We are a company of uncompromising integrity and business ethics. We achieve our ambitions and strategic initiatives by doing the right thing in an honest, fair, and responsible way, with and by our employees and business partners, every time.


We respect the law, support universal human rights, protect people and the environment and benefit the communities where we work. We respect each employee’s individuality and privacy, and do not tolerate discrimination.


As a renewable energy company, we are part of the climate change solution. We have set out a sustainability framework, underpinned by our Core Values to ensure we remain climate conscious and continuously improve.


We are the solar brand our communities and customers have come to count on. We adopt a solutions-driven mindset throughout our entire business, in order to stay ahead of the game in an ever-changing global energy landscape.

Diversity. Equity. Inclusion

Everything we do is underpinned by our purpose to deliver solar power to our world and our core values. Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Mission Statement is anchored by these core components and forms an integral part of our business strategy and future growth. These are more than just words for us, they’re the principles guiding how we build our teams, cultivate leaders, and create an inclusive workplace where our people are comfortable bringing their authentic whole selves to work.
